The BMW M2 is the performance hero of the 2 Series coupe range. It comes packing a six-cylinder inline turbocharged petrol engine developing 272kW of power at 6,500rpm, backed by 465Nm of torque, which is available from 1,400-5,650rpm. An in-built overboost function further swells torque to 500Nm from 1,450-4,750rpm.
Already equipped with an M body kit, widened fenders and 19-inch wheels, the BMW M2 looks aggressive and imposing straight out of the factory. But that didn’t stop chassis specialist H&R Suspension from spicing things up just a little further with a set of lowering springs for the sports coupe.

Specially tuned to work with the factory adaptive dampers, the springs lower the M2 by up to 50mm at both axles. The subtle drop is enough to set off a properly aggressive stance, eliminating any unsightly gap between the tyres and the wheel arches.
As the spring rates are the same as the factory specifications, the tuner says ride quality is not compromised while handling is improved and roll is reduced in corners. It’s also claimed that all suspension components are German made and have been TÜV tested and certified to guarantee durability and high performance.
The H&R adjustable sport springs for the BMW M2 costs 972 Euros.
